On Doing Less

On Doing Less.do-less-small2

Re-posted from http://fitisafeministissue.wordpress.com/2013/01/29/on-doing-less/#comments – an interesting site with a particular perspective that still manages to put forward lots of practical ideas on a broad range of fitness issues in an open and inclusive way.

The time-management ideas are excellent – I shall put them to good use. I have certainly worked on the premise that a little of yoga practised is better than none!! But may I comment that yoga practised on the mat is just that – practice for living our lives anywhere doing a whole miriad of things with all the benefits that yoga brings: strength, flexibility, balance to name but a few!  Now I’ve visited the blog, I’ll be revisiting!

How is the year shaping up?

In the current economic situation, being able to shop freely may not be possible, some of us may have to ebay possessions to raise needed cash. Or it could be much worse than that. In the Eight Limbs, Yoga encourage us not to be too attached to things, to be content with what we have, but also to be kind to ourselves. If life doesn’t always go the way we want it to, we should try to go easy on ourselves and avoid heaping blame and negativity on our head. And that can be hard to do…so spending a few minutes doing a few calming  or even energetic postures can help the process by focusing the mind on the body instead. Give a few downward-facing dogs a go, or a focusing balance…they can work wonders!
